Opening hours: 10:00am to 12:30pm, 22 April 2019

Held on Easter Monday, the Sydney Easter Parade & Family Day is a decades-old religious festival in Sydney which celebrates Jesus’s resurrection. Be wildly entertained by “live” music, a marching band, giant inflatables, stilt walkers, animal costumes, and much more!

Note that as this is an event for Australian Christians from all denominations, a worship session will be held prior to the parade. The themes and displays of the day will also be aligned to Christian values. However, the event welcomes participants from all religious beliefs, so do join in even if you are not a Christian.
